Beautiful Boy is a deeply moving portrait of a family’s unwavering love and commitment to each other in the face of their son’s addiction and his attempts at recovery. Based on two memoirs, one from acclaimed journalist David Sheff and one from his son, Nic Sheff. As Nic repeatedly relapses, the Sheffs are faced with the harsh reality that addiction is a disease that does not discriminate and can hit any family at any time.
Harrowing, heartbreaking and yet full of joy, hope and love, Beautiful Boy recounts the rehabs, disappearances, broken promises and rage as Nic sinks deeper into the drug world, as well as David’s efforts to save his “beautiful boy” from the ravages of addiction. Directed by Felix van Groeningen (The Broken Circle Breakdown), the film stars Academy Award nominees Steve Carell and Timothée Chalamet (Call Me by Your Name).
CTC In cinemas from Oct 25th.
“Timothée Chalamet and Steve Carell shine in harrowing look at addiction… It’s all too much sometimes, but it’s an undeniably wrenching journey.” – Steve Ponds, The Wrap
“The one undeniable reason to see Beautiful Boy is Chalamet, who brings the same emotional transparency that he brought to Elio in Call Me by Your Name, but does it playing a wildly different character.” – John Powers, Vogue
“The acting is uniformly excellent, and the movie looks almost disconcertingly great…” – Leah Greenblatt, Entertainment Weekly
“…it has a raw, haunting power.” – Benjamin Lee, The Guardian
